- Program Description
Drawing on the latest research, BODYWATCH recommends simple steps to take that can mitigate the aging process. For instance, studies show that between the ages of 45 and 55 most men experience an average 15 percent drop in physical work capacity. But with aerobic exercise, many men can preserve their youthful vigor. The impact of diet on longevity also is examined, and BODYWATCH experts help viewers separate sensible considerations about aging from superstition. Rhode Island Senator Claiborne Pell is interviewed about his unique views on holding back the aging process.
